Congregational Care

Congregational Care is an opportunity for disciples to give their time helping others with temporary, health-related needs. Each Sunday we publish in the church bulletin the name and phone number of the care coordinator who is “on-call” for the week.

Volunteers serve in many capacities, including:
-Providing transportation to the doctor, grocery store or other obligations;
-Delivering meals during an illness or recovery;
-Assisting with care for new babies;
-Helping out during a hospital-to-home transition; and
-Visiting shut-in members who are unable to attend church.

If you or someone you know has a similar need, call the care coordinator and make your request. Don’t have a bulletin? Simply call the church office at 566-0252 for the name and phone number of the weekly care coordinator.

The care coordinator will contact a Congregational Care caregiver, who will then call you to make the necessary arrangements. If it’s a simple request, such as a ride to a doctor’s office, the caregiver may handle everything by him/herself. If it’s a more complex request, such as help with a hospital-to-home transition, then several caregivers may be involved over a period of days or weeks.

Congregational Care also can help anyone in need obtain a broad range of home health equipment free of charge. For more information, contact the church office at 566-0252.
